HOCKEY OWNS
FUCK YEAH




this dude has his tweets posted in the security fuckup thread sometimes. he legit owns and has done a ton to make everyone's computer more secure over the years. tavis is a security researcher with google's project zero. lately he has been looking at entire categories of software that he thinks have problems and picks them to pieces. he has such a reputation now that him sending a tweet like this:

https://twitter.com/taviso/status/832744397800214528

is cause for red alert at your company. you never want to see your company/software mentioned in a tweet like that from him. that tweet was in reference to cloudflare loving up and leaking private data to everyone through their SSL caching tool and having it indexed by all search engines: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/project.../detail?id=1139

he also famously decided to pick apart the entire av industry: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/project....com+&cells=ids

he's also entertaining because he will call people out on their poo poo on twitter, especially when they push back at him about something he's an expert at:

he will also outright troll other organizations to get them to fix their poo poo:

tavis ormandy loving owns. normally i wouldn't suggest people read someone's twitter but his is legit worth it and you should follow him if you like this kind of poo poo
